Circle skirt by hand

The most amazing thing that happened to me in 2016 is that I found myself in sewing! And it started from a simple circle skirt! Keep reading to learn how to make one by yourself.

Simple shapes – beginning of something great

I liked watching DIY videos but you know you never find enough time to do something by yourself or you are just not motivated enough. So one day I finally decided to try myself in DIY and to create something by myself. I did not have a sewing machine at that time and buying a machine just to sew a thing once in my life didn’t look like a great idea.

So I have chosen a simple shape – circle skirt. It looks quite pretty. I also found a way how to make it by hand without any equipment! Follow this receipt and make one for yourself.

P.S. At that time I didn’t plan to make a blog. So I don’t have any photos of good quality but I believe it will be clear how to make it!

Ingredients:

 – 1.5 meters of any fabric.
 – 1 meter of an elastic.
 – Threads, matching the fabric.
 – Scissors.
 – Needles.
 – A sharp piece of soap (anything that can write on fabric and can be easily cleaned).
 – The length of the skirt.
 – Measurement of your waist.
 – Measurement of your hips.   

1. Fold the fabric in the way it is shown in the picture below.
